Specific recommendations to Tactical Teams

The Israeli Army considers the Sharav wind (high in positive ion concentrations) a natural enemy of an efficient fighting force. They even have a term for this reaction called "Bedouinism" which means the soldiers cease to be alert, or effective fighters during the wind.

Bank employees went from an error rate of 2.5% before negative ion generators were installed, to an error rate of 0.5% while working in negative ion enriched air.

Mistakes are more common on these days.

Concentration can waver.

Expect more of an aggressive response from the targets.

Targets will take extra risks on these days.

Long standoffs: Tactical Snipers should be relieved more often.

Reaction time can slow down on Extreme positive ion days. Even a few millisecond delay can make for a more difficult "clear" target. (Your ability to accurately aim to target center may be a much wider spread than you normally )

Balance and endurance can be reduced drastically. 

A reporter in Jerusalem states that during the positive ion winds that frequent Israel, the Israeli soldiers are listless while at the same time having hair trigger tempers.

If the operation is a planned assault, consideration of other days may be more favorable as alertness and reaction time, needed for rapid response may be greatly diminished during Extreme positive ion alerts.

Extra caution should also be taken during Positive Ion Winds in areas with these winds such as the Chinook in Calgary, Santa Ana in California (many other Positive Ion Winds around the world are listed here)

What others are doing:

A company Strategically Aligned with United Dynamics Corp. has developed a Passive Negative Ion Generator (Patent Pending) that doesn't require a power source and produces negative ions within 12-15" of the users head. They are currently testing the device with Law Enforcement to counteract the Positive Ion Effect, keeping the officer in a negative ion field. The picture to the right shows their current Mark I device on the under brim of a Police hat providing the officer with negative ions. They can be used on helmets or vests, or in the filtered air of gas masks. These devices are being improved with higher output in the Mark II series and large scale manufacturing is being planned. These devices are not yet available.

Passive Negative Ion Generator Lapel Pins. Under Development.

They are planning lapel pins made out of the device. A few of the ideas they have come up with can be seen in the lapel pins to the left. These devices are not yet available.

Police Products being Developed:

Concepts and Prototype devices are being designed by the inventor of the Passive Negative Ion Generator. If successful, these will be brought to the Law Enforcement market within a few years. These particular devices should enable Tactical officers to become more effective. 

Riot/SWAT Charged Phaser Shields
Disable people and animals in defensive or offensive operations. Contact Required.
Failsafe switch disables Phaser if Shield and Officer are separated.

(Phasers are Variable Voltage Tasers).

Phaser Charged Body Armor
Charged Body Armor disables attackers on contact. 

Short Range, Non-Contact, Non Lethal Phasers (Variable Voltage Tasers)
No Contact Required, No wire electrode to fire.

Non-contact Long Distance Sniper Phasers(Variable Voltage Tasers)
Disable just your target at Sniper Distances. No Contact Required, No wire electrodes to fire.

Long Distance Counter-Suicide Device
Long Distance Negative Ion (Counter-Depression) Transmission directly on distressed individual,
Portable, Non-contact Device. Should trigger calmer, rational decisions. May also be used in certain hostage negotiations.
